Development of a Closed Loop Paint Circulation System for Non-Newtonian Waterborne Coatings 2006-01-0755

Waterborne coatings are being used more widely in the automotive industry due to their environmentally benign properties. As the rheological properties of the waterborne coatings are significantly different from most solvent borne coatings, paint circulation systems that are designed for solvent borne coatings are not necessarily well suited for waterborne coatings. It is possible to fully characterize the rheology of the waterborne coatings and make an optimized design of the paint circulation system, resulting in improved finish quality and reduced operating cost.
